Look at anguished families
Facing parental powers…
Wanting to take their loved ones home,
While ugly dementia flowers.
Listen to the wife who knows
That her husband might not come home
Costly improvements made at home
Are they worth it if he stays here…
Sell the house or mortgage it out
To pay it year-by-year?
What does one say to a spouse
Or parent incapable…
Shutting them up with visiting days
